“This isn’t just the recycling of the glories of the 60s, there is enough of their own personality to make this something formidable in its own right.” -
Scruffy Bear bring new energy to rock music. Comprised of Georgy Eaton,
Ryan Hunt, Jack Wild and Sass Lafferty, together they have crafted a refreshing new take on rock music bringing their personalities and boundless influences to the uncompromised melting pot.
With 19,000+ streams worldwide under their belt and radio play in the UK, USA, Canada, South America and mainland Europe, Scruffy Bear are loud and raw yet they incorporate intricacies that are otherwise lost with the rock and roll attitude.
After slots at the Ritz in Manchester, Rockmantic Festival & supporting acts such as Divinity Roxx & Hands Off Gretel, the band are known to capture any audience in the palm of their hand.
2020 has already given the band their 3rd sold out headline Manchester show, first UK tour and the release of their 4th single 'Pebbles'. The band are currently working on their debut EP set to be released later in the year.
"Scruffy Bear have come a long way in the past few years and it now feels like they are the complete article. They played a mammoth, hair raising sold out headline slot at Gullivers NQ, and their new songs are sounding absolutely huge."

"Pebbles is about the constant battles of being in your early 20s. Just when you think you’ve got your brain and your life on the track there’s ALWAYS something else to pull you down the rabbit hole and you’ve got to start all over again. I wrote the chorus as being prematurely excited about getting old, moving to the middle of the woods and living out your golden years. When in reality, I know I’ve got the rest of my life to be bored with having to go over the same obstacles. "
"The light and shade they bring is like being back in the late 60’s experiencing Led Zeppelin. And it is loud too, and intense – just how I like it."

I'M DOING BETTER
Released Jan 2020
Released Jan 2018
"Water is about city life getting you down and wearing away at your creativity. However, you stay because your love for someone is stronger than your hatred of the grey buildings surrounding you."
Released Nov 2018
"Sundance is about trying to be yourself and go along with the flow of life instead of hesitating on your life-long dreams."
"If you imagine Janis Joplin fronting up Zep I think you will be fairly close to the mark. Front woman Georgy Eaton contorts herself all over the stage providing the vocal layer which sets this band apart."
- Rockfiend Publications
"The band break out into a hazy, fuzz-fueled intensity that makes the hairs on your arms stand up. The full throttle, defiant rhythms and unconstrained vocals emanate through the speakers. They have immersed you into their exciting artistic visionary and you never want to leave."
